New challenges are created by the growth of electronic commerce, new products and services, and the growing proliferation of cybercrime every day. Our strong IP foundation has allowed us to extend our reach into a commerce and technology concentration.
Supported by UNH Law's strong IP foundation, the Commerce and Technology program is built at the intersection of business and law to tackle evolving legal issues facing new business and e-commerce in the global information age economy.
Expert faculty tailor courses to current events and developments, and the program offers flexibility to match the career objectives of each individual student. Course work addresses rapidly-developing areas of the law, such as cybercrime and consumers’ private information.
